ROSANNA Davison is having a knees-up this weekend as she enjoys her hen party in a top Irish castle.
The Herald can reveal she chose Castle Leslie as the venue for her VIP bash, which sees her joined by her nearest and dearest.
And she's obviously keen to make sure everything's perfect for her nuptials party
in Ireland on June 21, following her wedding in Ibiza to Wesley Quirke.
A source revealed how Rosanna was seen in the Powerscourt Hotel earlier this
week along with dad Chris de Burgh and mum Diane.
“They were checking out the room that she's renting out for her big wedding party.
It's a really exciting time for the whole family,” the source said.
Castle Leslie is clearly a big hit among celebs – Republic of Telly host Jennifer Maguire also chose the luxury retreat for her wedding this summer.
Rosanna's best pals have joined her for this weekend’s bash, including her four bridesmaids, close pals from school and college, her mum and Wesley's mum.
More than 20 guests have gone with her to the Co Monaghan venue as they make sure it's a weekend she'll remember.
However, Rosanna has said she was keen to avoid all the usual trappings that come
with hen parties such as chocolate body parts and blow-up dolls.
She said she wanted it to be a “low-key” affair.
“Things like L plates are not really my style and I don't think there will be a stripper,” she said. “To be honest, I want to be able to remember it all, so instead of a nightclub it'll be more cocktails and dinner with a bit of a dance.”
Last week, it was the turn of fiance Wes to mark his last few weeks of freedom. He
headed to Galway for his stag do, where he was joined by his two brothers, Hubie
It's going to be a month of celebrations for the former Miss World. Her 30th birthday is next Thursday, so her hen party will also be marking that.
“I thought combining the two occasions would be a good idea, it kind of takes the sting out of turning 30,” said Rosanna.
She will walk down the aisle at an intimate bash in Ibiza at the luxurious Atzaro resort on June 1, when she will be given away by her dad.
The fun-loving model will be having a two-day event for her big day, which will see
one of her best pals, Dawn Fitzgerald, designing a unique creation for her.
